    I got this book free as a GoodReads First Read.It was altogether a lovely book, with great illustrations It reminded me very much of the film Spirited Away , whose charm it shared I must admit to finding anthropomorphised animals somewhat disturbing, no matter what the work, but Crawshaws depiction of them was gentle and insightful The denouement I found a little weaker than the rest of the work, but all in all a nice diversion.

    started out good, then started to get monotamous each chapter started to be the same, going over the same stuff just with a different animal.

About the Author: Todd Crawshaw

I m a visual artist By day, a graphic designer, by night and early morning, I m a writer For me, creative writing is a visual art, using line upon line of symbolic code to light up our neurons and transport us elsewhere Words are like colors They can be shaped, textured, and tinted with nuance, exposed into lightness or darkness They heal They cause pain Words are complex instruments charged with poetic ambiguity They trigger emotional collapses a catharsis, an epiphany, a shuddering release of tension that comes in a warm torrential rush As well, they can alight, arriving delicately, as shimmering and magnificent as a butterfly emerging from its own womb Like atoms begetting atoms that beget molecules, when uniquely linked, words form a DNA of indelible visions Visit crawshawdesign.
